    1. If I do the connection test, and I don't get an error, does that mean the xbox isn't banned??

    2. Do you have to buy a XBL sub for every XBL account? Or will one sub be enough for all accounts on the same xbox?!?

    Thanks

    that's what I am trying to find out... I don't have any backup games to test if the dvd drive is flashed...

    But I have created a XBL silver account and it is downloading demos just fine :bigthumb:

    backups or not, it will still get banned.

    find a one month card on ebay, buy it for like 3-5$, then make an account and see if the box is banned.

    I don't think it was ever flashed (it included 2 retail games)... hopefully not :noes:

    So you can't find out if it is banned without buying a gold xbl sub??

    He's connected to LIVE bro, banned consoles can't use silver accounts either.
